** ''Brony in Equestria'' stories (where the [[AuthorAvatar main character]] is usually male, has knowledge of the series and more often than not gets turned into a pony and has [[GodModeSue incredible powers]]) are so widespread and often of terrible quality to the point that Blog/EquestriaDaily has banned them completely, and in general they are also frowned upon elsewhere unless they are ''very'' good. Go to the My Little Pony section of FanFictionDotNet or Website/FimfictionDotNet and you are almost guaranteed to find at least one or two stories of this type on the main page, due to the ''massive'' LongingForFictionland this series has. This is not to be confused with ''Human in Equestria'' stories, where the character(s) have no knowledge of Equestria or its inhabitants whatsoever.

* An interesting trend has popped up amid the Manga/MahouSenseiNegima fanfic authors. After Creator/ShadowCrystalMage popularized the idea of crossing over Negima with MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha, a few other authors have taken up the mantle. Currently, Mage and two others are writing stories in which negi is sent to Uminari as a teacher for Nanoha after the events of A's. Ironically, one of the copycats, Zephyr-Fiction's FanFic/EqualAndOppositeAttractions, has garnered the most press. Mainly this is because Mage has many more projects on his plate.

** Interestingly enough, [[Creator/NimbusLlewelyn the author]] credited ''FanFic/SmallvilleXEvolution'' as an influence on his writings, perhaps making it OlderThanTheyThink.

** Since the fanfic {{Progress}} became popular, it has become commonplace for other writers to portray Princess Luna with a CompanionCube abacus.
** Same with ''{{FanFic/Cupcakes}}''. Ever since it became popular, there have been many other ''My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic'' [[DarkFic dark fics]] set out to copy it's success.

* A relatively minor example: while ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', a crossover between ''Literature/HarryPotter'' and ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'', didn't even come close to inventing the idea of one of Harry's being someone other than Lily or James, or even Lily or James being a CompositeCharacter with another character (in this case, James was Thor), but its success ''did'' spawn a surge of imitators, a number of which copied its MegaCrossover attributes too - certainly, quite a few are decidedly up-front about what they're following on from.

** Common Itachi/Sakura plots involve Sakura running off to get Sasuke back from Orochimaru's clutches, and getting captured/used as bait for Naruto by Itachi. Many cite [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2633721/1/Metamorphosis Metamorphosis]] as inspiration or influence.

* Count the number of ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' fanfics which focus on an original trainer, who sleeps in on the morning when they're supposed to receive their first Pokémon, arrive at the lab only to find that all the usual starters are gone and instead get a completely different starter. Very often a rare and valuable Pokémon. Almost always an Eevee. Their goal is always [[ToBeAMaster to become a Pokémon master]]. To be fair, this is the purpose of the main series. The use of Eevee has generally slowed down, but OC journey fics are still the same even without Eevee.

* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': This story started the trend of Shinji and Asuka having a daughter in fanfiction. When they have offspring in any fanwork, ninety percent of time it is a girl: ''[[Fanfic/{{HERZ}} Akiko, Sakiko]]'', their two unnamed children in ''Manga/ReTake'', ''[[Fanfic/TheSecondTry Aki]]'', ''[[Fanfic/ThousandShinji Kali]]'', ''[[Fanfic/WalkingInTheShadowOfDreams Ariel]]'', their unnamed daughter in ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'', ''[[Fanfic/ACrownOfStars Misato]]'', Ryuko in ''[[http://forum.evageeks.org/thread/16236/Ghosts-of-Evangelion Ghosts of Evangelion]]''

* 75% of all Dragonball Z fanfiction starts with an alien spaceship crashing down on Earth, and ends with a character using a new form of Super Saiyan to beat them. It will also be set during the 3 months before the Androids, the 7 years before Cell or the 10 years after Buu. Other common elements include Vegeta or Broly getting possessed by Babidi, Buu or Cell absorbing someone new or each other, Saiyans inexplicitly growing back their tails, Bardock being rewritten as an honourable anti-hero and Future Trunks travelling to New Namek to use the Dragon Balls there.

* Among ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' fanfics, the story ''Fanfic/RequiemForALoud'' led to several other stories about Lincoln dying. Other popular topics are Lincoln [[TheRunAway running away from home after feeling unwanted or being mistreated by his sisters]], and Lincoln becomming a superhero.
** [[FixFic Fix Fics]] based on rather badly received episodes, such as "No such luck" and "Brawl in the Family", are also highly likely to spawn a horde of imitators.

* The current trend among people who write {{Troll Fic}}s (or who just want a lot of reviews and attention and don't care about the quality of their work) seems to be to copy ''FanFic/MyImmortal'''s format, issues with spelling, MyChemicalRomance references, and [[MarySue Goth Sue]] main character.
